The archetypal German city – proud and dignified, abounded with gardens. But at nights, in some districts, it shows a slightly different face. Discover Hamburg in all its shades.
Hamburg is one of the most beautiful sites in Germany. Located in the north of the country, it resembles the cities of Scandinavia. You’ll be impressed by its magnificent tenements, broad avenues, and stunning urban parks. The first settlement was established here around the 4th century BC. Regarding population, Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany; it is also the biggest port in the country.
Hamburg is rich in greenery and nature. Planten un Blomen park is among the city’s greatest attractions. There is a botanical garden with a palm house and the largest Japanese garden in Europe. On summer evenings, you can enjoy amazing water-light concerts here.
Not far from the city you’ll find the popular Heide Park, the largest amusement park in Northern Germany. It covers an area of 80 ha and offers more than 50 different attractions, divided into themed worlds, e.g., Pirate Bay, Transilvania, and Wild Wild West.
If you want to taste the typical German food, go for currywurst – the recommended places are, e.g., Curry Queen Deli at 2 Zippelhaus or Kiez Curry at 2 Querstraße. But if you’re more into cuisine from other corners of the world, visit Kailua Poké. You can order here the famed Hawaiian poke bowl filled with raw pieces of fish, rice, and a variety of vegetables. Can’t you imagine life without pizza? So, you should definitely head to Überquell, and not only for the best meal but also to enjoy beer which is brewed on the spot.
The city will surprise you with its many faces – from the Reeperbahn (one of the most famous nightlife quarters in Europe), through the bustling city center, to the district of Blankenese with its exclusive villa houses. Every part of Hamburg looks different, but together they create a harmonious whole – an outstanding and vibrant place you simply must visit!
